Put Your Best Foot Forward

This is my contribution to Eileeninmd's Saturday's Critters #40.

Here is a young toad I've seen in front of the house in West Virgina a few times over the last month or so. He/she/it has just one front foot, but remains gainfully employed in the toad business:


I saw this silver Gray Treefrog on my car and thought it was dead...it was hot and dry out. Especially on the car!

But no...perfectly fine! (Note the color change compared to this one...they can change colors like a chameleon, albeit more slowly.)

Mouse over pics for captions, and click them for larger versions.

Surprised that little toady has become bird food by now given all the magnificent bird life there around Lake Siri.

Wonderful shots of the toad, frog and turtle! Glad the little toad is doing well even with the loss of his leg.

They are cute!

Jim H., the frogs and toads are up in the woods around the house. Down by the lake, you're right...not many amphibians to be seen.

Very cute little guys - they're probably wise to stay away from the lake.

They're adorable!

Yeah, but what's the deal with them all missing their left front appendage? Gambling debts. Toadslamic Sharia Justice? Drunk & Clumsy?

That's not a toad, it's only three-quarters toed!

I hope the turtle makes it. Must be hard to swim like that.
